Make-up at the Photo-shoot
Depending on your needs and package selection, we can have or we have a make-up artist on site, who understands how the studio’s light affects the makeup – we usually stat with a natural makeup and as it needed we might put on stronger makeup depending on the purpose of your headshot and the influence of your clothes.
Pls do bring with you your own makeup /foundation if its needed or come with already prepared professional make up for photoshoot.
We don’t use makeup on guys, but we recommend to come prepared ( beard, eyebrow, facial hair, hair clean) but we are prepared for last minute adjustment in the studio too.
Please bring cloth with you, what you love and feel good in, we prefer solid colors (no big patterns pls) in light tones, which you feel confortable with. We try to avoid vivid color since it can reflect on your skin, since headshot is about you, and we don’t want to take attention away from your face.
Your neckline is important part of making you look good, we prefer cloth which doesn’t cover the neck too much and also doesn’t reflect too much of your neckline.
For guys, we prefer a shirt and a jacket and pls do bring couple of your ties and dress professional casual.
Pls do come with a hair as ready as possible, what you consider that it’s a “good hair day”J We might do some minor changes during the photoshoot. If its requested we can have a hairdresser also on site.
The headshot session is about you, and making You looking good, pls do come alone in order to be able to focus fully on the process, it will take you 20-30’ to adjust/relax and our professional photographer will do the rest. You just need to let it go and enjoy the process.
